GMP Tech Session: Make the great performance of your Porsche even better with upgrades and enhancements from Porsche Asheville’s performance partner GMP Performance. GMP Performance will be sending two of their Porsche experts over from their Charlotte base to discuss products and set-up they recommend for initial performance enhancements for your Porsche.

This is a tech session for all you tracking your car, thinking about it or just want better street performance. An extensive question and answer period is factored into the morning so a good discussion can occur relevant to you and the other club members.
Porsche Asheville will also have their expert in attendance to discuss how you can acquire the GMP Performance products through Porsche Asheville and have them installed by your trusted Porsche service team.

Wheels to Where? This was a planned 'Wheels to Whiskey' Drive & Dine to the Blue Ridge Distilling Company in Bostic; however, attempts to contact the establishment have failed. A D&D is still planned, destination unknown. Stay tuned for more information in the next several days.
